neightbor took his wing out for a solo ride down the road , first for the year , got to where he wanted to turn around and no brakes front or rear , he had this bike in to a honda dealer last year and had all the fluids changed , includeing the brakes , very strange , both brakes down at the same time , would wrong brake fluid cause a problem like this , it sit in the garage for the winter , both master brake cylinders are full of fluids

I use dot4. I'm also just amazed he even rode the bike at all before checking it over,unless the levers are seized and just seemed like it had brakes.
I'd be going back to the dealer with some legal questions.
Other than that,it sounds like a do-over to me.Clean everything and flush new fluid through the whole system.

sounds about right to me , he's thinking they put the wrong fluid in when he had it flushed and filled , he took this wing to his local honda dealer , seems like they would know what fluids to put in there , thanks for your responce
